Overview of Information Collection DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT SUMMARY: Title of Information Collection: Implementation Phase Evaluation of LGBTQ Youth Homelessness Prevention Initiative. OMB Approval Number: NA. Type of Request: New. Form Number: NA. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The LGBTQ Youth Homelessness Prevention Initiative began in the summer of 2013 as part of a federal interagency initiative to prevent homelessness among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth, and to intervene early when homelessness occurs for these youths. Federal partners from the U.S. Departments of Education, Health, and Juvenile Justice, as well as the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness, support this HUD Frequency of response 30 Jkt 244001 Comments Due Date: January 22, 2018. 1 PO 00000 Burden hour per response Responses per annum Frm 00046 30 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 initiative. The initiative supports the federal goal to end youth homelessness and contributes to the development of a model for preventing LGBT youth homelessness that other communities can replicate. Two communities participate in this initiative and receive technical assistance (TA) to support their initiative planning and implementation. This request for OMB clearance covers the implementation phase which will document the approach and experiences of both communities as they have implemented their local plan. Furthermore, this review will examine the resources required to carry out implementation, what worked well, what challenges emerged and how they were addressed, lessons learned and recommendations both sites offer for potential replication. To produce this information, HUD will collect quantitative and qualitative data from primary sources using four methods: Interviews, surveys, focus groups, and document review. Participants will consist of the local initiative leads as well as individuals involved in local initiative steering committees and subcommittees and community members associated with the initiative. This is a re-submission of a PRA package that had previously been withdrawn by the Department to undertake additional review.

Abstract: The National Map Corps (TNMCorps) is the name of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Geospatial Program (NGP) project that encourages citizen participation in volunteer map data collection activities. TNMCorps uses crowdsourcing—new technologies and Internet services to georeference structure points and share this information with others on mapbased Internet platforms—to produce volunteered geographic information (VGI). People participating in the crowd sourcing will be considered part of the TNMCorps. In general, the National Structures Dataset (NSD) has been populated with the best available national data. This data has been exposed for initial improvement by TNMCorps volunteers via the online Map Editor (the instrument). In addition, the data goes through a tiered-editing process, which includes Peer Review and Advanced Editors. At each stage the data is passed through an automatic ‘‘magic filter’’ to look for data issues before being submitted into the NSD. In addition data goes through sampling for quality assurance procedures. Once part of the NSD, the data are then available to the USGS and to the public at no cost via The National Map and ultimately US Topo. Data quality studies in 2012 and 2014 showed that the volunteers’ actions were accurate and exceeded USGS quality standards. Volunteer-collected data showed an improvement in both location and attribute accuracy for existing data points. Completeness, or the extent to which all appropriate features were identified and recorded, was also improved. Title of Collection: The National Map Corps—Volunteered Geographic Information Project. OMB Control Number: 1028–0111. Form Number: NA. Type of Request: Extension of currently approved collection. Affected Public: General Public. Respondent’s Obligation: None. Participation is voluntary. E:\FR\FM\21NON1.SGM 21NON1
